Each of these 32 Math Challenge Task Cards has a different multi-step math story problem. Students will need to use all four operations as they solve the problems. There are also some cards that involve money, measurement, or elapsed time.
A student Answer Sheet is included, as well as an Answer Key so students can check their work. You may want to have students show their work on notebook paper and staple their papers to the Answer Sheet. Alternatively, you can use the included half-page Answer Sheet which has enough space for students to show their work for an individual card. In addition, you will find a Challenge Card that can be used with any other card in the set. This card asks students to come up with an expression (an equation) that can be used to solve the problem featured on their card.
